Documentation is necessary to ensure accountability: vital sign monitoring, input/output charts, Bristol Stool charts when necessary, progress notes for passing over of important instructions, medication charts for administration of the right dose at the right time. Documentation is a discipline that is passed onto the patient and encouraged after Home Medicare discharges our patients. We also train the family or caregiver to call for help when a situation arises. Home Medicare gives a life line to the patient and their family which provides added comfort and confidence to the care of their loved ones.
At Home Medicare honesty, kindness and empathy for all our patients and their families are instilled into every healthcare worker. Home Medicare’s foundation is true to the famous quote by an American Physician and a public health pioneer during the pre-antibiotic period, Dr Edward Trudeau “To cure sometimes, to relieve often, to comfort always”
